I am a Romanian Nutritionist-Dietetitian, with a master degree in Nutrition Sciences, and a PhD in Oncology Nutrition for Breast Cancer Patients.
I am a member of the European Specialist Dietetic Network for Oncology Committee, ESMO, ESPEN and MASC, and part of the editing team of Advances in Nutrition journal published by the American Society for Nutrition.
I advocate a healthy eating style, but healthy not only for the body, but also healthy for the mind.
Up to this point I wrote four nutrition books.
My first book, the brutally honest “5 Gears Diet” provides all the information needed to understand fat gain and fat loss. Reading this book is like learning again how to drive, this time not your car but your body.
My second is a more maternal book – “Nutrition Guide for Mums“.
Being the mother of two beautiful and healthy boys myself – I know first hand that children don’t come with a manual. Yet they come with a Mother 🙂
In my third book “The Old Chocolate Diet” I describe how to eat our favorite foods without disregarding our health & to embrace the spirit that makes us foodies rather than to reject this spirit that drives us to crave and savor our food. Rather than denying those urges, I encourage you to truly appreciate what you eat with a constant focus on your physical and mental health. To remain healthy, slim and fit, have your cake and eat it too – but eat it in a mindful nourishing way for your mind and for your body too, not in a destructive numb way.
If you’ve been dieting since forever, read this book and make peace with your body.
My fourth book “Breast cancer ain’t pink” is an oncology nutrition guide for breast cancer patients who want to understand how they cane at during treatment to counteract side effects and to sustain treatment’s efficacy, and a healthy eating and lifestyle guide for the patients’ family members and friends who want to know how they can prevent this diagnosis.
From the fact that veganism, bio foods, vitamin C or other dietary supplements with antioxidants, alkaline water or beetroot juice do not improve prognosis, to the fact that based on the current evidence the ketogenic die tis contraindicated to any patient with cancer because it increases tumoral aggressivity and the risks of proliferation, metastasis and recurrence – read and understand how extreme nutritional attitude worsen prognosis, transforming curable cancers in incurable ones.
